Excitement I Can Do Without…

Well, I had to delay leaving for a day because what was supposed to be a simple 50-hour week turned into a hectic 70-hour week and I didn’t get all my prep done.

Then I had to buy a new lawn mower when the old one died.  Then the second house down the street from us burned down and I spent 4 hours hosing burning debris off my roof and the immediate neighbor’s roof, watching the firemen and generally hobnobbing and commiserating with the rest of the street’s denizens.  As I suspected, watching everyone pitch in to help the family, who lost nearly everything, we’re surrounded by a lot of decent folks of all nationalities, colors and languages.

I can still smell the smoke as I sit here.

So, now I’m going to finish packing, shut the house down and try to get to Alexandria, LA before dark.

Y’all keep the Morga’s in your prayers, OK?

How Do I Get Off This…

Merry-Go-Round?

And still pay the bills?

Work has been hectic for the last month with travel and what-not.  Not much time to gel out, much less post anything and I just don’t have the synaptic energy left at the end of the day to be a deep thinker.

But…

ROAD TRIP!

I’m headed out on a two-week 3000-5000 mile trip on Black Maria with Daughter #1’s wedding thrown in the middle for grins.  I’m bringing my laptop and camera so I hope to do some road-blogging on the way.

Y’all behave.
